Undergraduate Research Symposium

Undergraduate students from Misher College of Arts and Sciences were offered the opportunity to present their research at the first Misher Undergraduate Research Symposium on April 2. Thirty-one students were selected to participate.

An important part of the research symposium was the opportunity for five students to give oral presentations. Student participants derived from many different departments within Misher, including the Department of Biological Sciences, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Department of Mathematics, Physics and Statistics, Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences, and the Department of Humanities.

The Undergraduate Research Symposium was the kickoff event for a recent initiative to promote and showcase undergraduate research from departments within the Misher College of Arts and Sciences. An advisory board made up of six representatives from various departments and headed by Dr. Elia Eschenazi, professor and chair for the Mathematics, Physics and Statistics Department, met for months to plan the symposium.
